We’re sure she’s hurting. Amy Roloff’s mother, Patricia Knight, died on September 24 at the age of 86. Her husband, Gordon G. Knight, was right by her side, according to Radar Online. So, who are Amy’s parents? Have we ever seen them on Little People, Big World? Are they little people themselves? Let’s find out more about the reality star’s family.

Who Are Amy Roloff’s Parents?

Amy’s mom Patricia and her dad, Gordon, were married for 67 years and Gordon is now 90 years old. They both lived in the Upper Peninsula in Michigan, and Amy, 55, appears to visit often if her Instagram updates are any indication.

Are Amy’s Parents Little People?

No, Amy’s parents appear to be of “average” height. She also has a brother, Roger, who does not have a form of dwarfism as she does, and a sister named Katherine, according to Radar. Her brother protected her from bullies when she was a child, according to a clip from Little People, Big World.

Have Amy’s Parents Been on the Show?

Yes! Patricia and Gordon have both appeared on the TLC series. Radar noted that Patricia actually made several appearances on Little People, Big World over the years.

What Was Amy’s Mom’s Cause of Death?

It’s not completely clear how Patricia died. But it’s likely that she passed after an illness because Amy has told her followers in the past that her mom was sick. For instance, she shared on June 11, on her Instagram, “I’m so bummed my mom couldn’t come home yet but needs to stay in the hospital a little longer so they can take care of an infection in the bone of her finger still. Her heart is weak but she is doing well considering. I was sad to have to leave already to come back home. I’ll be back in July. Thank you to those for your prayers and encouragement. I’m very appreciative of them. Appreciate moments every day for time is but a moment and goes by fast.”

Then, the reality TV mom wrote about another visit to Michigan on August 2, and said, “My mom is hanging in there. She’s still able to get around a little — she’s determined and her mind is strong but her body is weak. Just try to take time to appreciate moments every day before they slip away.” We really hope the whole family is doing OK in the wake of the loss of Amy’s beloved mother.
